Remembering the victims of 2018 Air Medical plane crash

It's been one year since three first responders on an errand of mercy died in a plane crash in Morton County. Many are still wondering how the plane broke apart in the air. The National Transportation Safety Board hasn't released its final crash report. Last year in its preliminary report, the NTSB confirmed there was no explosion or plane fire. The wreckage was scattered for nearly a mile. CHI St. Alexius honored the three victims alongside family and friends with a monument on the outside of the south entrance of the hospital.

Robots aid Bismarck surgeons, wow patients

It’s a little more than two weeks since Diane Gladowski, 79, had surgery on her abdomen to repair a hernia, and she’s surprised by how quickly she’s recovering. She’s had surgery before -- hysterectomies, appendectomies, gallbladder surgery -- that left her laid up in an opiate-induced haze for weeks.
